There's no Knowing but Just Be Sure

There's no Knowing but Just Be Sure

A Poem by Yani De Los Reyes

I was studying...then I went on writing this.

There's no knowing when you'll go high
or when you fall down
Just be sure you have a parachute with you
There's no knowing when you'll fall in love
or when you break down because you were given up
Just be sure not to fall into a well after that
There's no knowing when people will give up
and start living in normality
Just be sure you learned your studies well. You'll need it.
There's no knowing when you'll cry
or when you'll smile with your teeth wide open
Just be sure you brushed them. Or else.
There's no knowing when the impossible will become possible
or when the expected becomes unexpected
Just be sure you prepare your yourself. Be ready.
There's no knowing when you'll pass an exam
or fail in it dramatically
Just be sure your parents will understand you. Seriously.
There's no knowing when you'll die
or when you'll start living again
But if you lived your life to the fullest,
Then you're sure of everything.

A person can't know what will happen in the future but people should "Just Be Sure" :)

Haha i was reading this too seriously but my giggles pulled me off guard :) The best thing I like about this poem is how normal it feels. haha if that even makes sense.

Life is what you make it. We can create a positive life or a negative life. Better to live life to the fullest and be sure you didn't miss anything. I like the poem. A very good message.
